I learned only recently that dear Mr. Golding passed away--what a wonderful man! He was my 4th grade teacher, and I will forever remember him and his kindness, his impeccable manners, and that he taught me how to spell imponderable! My deepest sympathies to the family...
I was very sorry to learn about the passing of Mr. Goulding. He was my 4th grade teacher at Prairie Grove in the 1960's. He was a wonderful man. My deepest sympathy to his family.
To the Goulding family....Mr. Goulding was my 4th grade teacher at Prairie Grove oh so many years ago. The one thing that stood out about him was his help with teaching me how to tell time! I must have been the only one in my class that couldn't and I struggled. I remember his help and kindness and always thought of him as a true gentleman! I'm so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time.
Mr .Goulding was my 4th grade teacher, and I am 55 yrs old. I am very sad he has passed. He wrote a poem for me about always running for the bus. :) I am sure he will be missed by so many...Prayers to his family ..

Mr. Goulding was my first teacher at Prairie Grove school. He was always patient with us-even when we misbehaved! He challenged us to learn and as a result I have always enjoyed school! Proud to say I am entering my 20th year of teaching~ Thank you Mr. Goulding you were a special man!
My prayers are with your family. Mr. Goulding was a wonderful teacher. He will be missed by many that he influenced and taught over the years.
Mr. Goulding was my 4th grade teacher at Prairie Grove. The last time I seen him was when my youngest brother graduated from there. My prayers go to the entire family.
Dear Julie, We're so sorry to hear that your Dad passed away. I know that you are very close to your family. We want you to know that we'll be thinking of you, and you and your family are all in our prayers.

I am so sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. The memories of our high school years have come flooding back to me today. Whenever I would call you your Dad would answer the phone with his standard greeting - "Geoff Goulding here". We would always laugh as he was so proper. AND he was really such a sweet man. Dave & I send our sincerest sympathy to your Mom and sisters also. Love , Jeannine (Glauser-Anderson)
Prairie Grove Teachers Association respectfully wishes the Goulding Family our deepest sympathies in remembrance of a wonderful teacher and well liked & respected colleague.
Mr. Goulding was my most favorite teacher (Prairie Grove 1959). I remember how kind he was. He was a natural teacher and his class was work and fun. Find peace in the beautiful memories you shared.
Grandpa, I will never forget you sitting on our laps and saying "Squeak piggy, squeak!" You were such a kind and gentle man, who did a wonderful job raising three wonderful daughters. I love you!
Love Forever, Heather
Our Prayers are with Betty and her daughters and their families. Geoffrey was such a sweet, kind man. We all loved him and will miss him very much.
My name is Laura Krepel and I taught with Geoff at Prairie Grove School at the beginning of my teaching years. He was always a kind person and a gentleman. He cared about everyone. He was a wonderful colleague. He also taught my husband, George, in 4th grade and many of his siblings. He taught the boys in school how to play cricket!

Dear Julie -
Sorry to hear about the loss of your Dad. Thinking of you and your family. Love, Bev and Madeline
Julie and family,
We are so sorry to hear of your dad's passing. I know he was a very special man, teacher, dad and grandpa. He was so appreciative when we provided binoculars so he could see Katie perform in her play. May your loving memories always keep him close to your heart.

When I had Mr. Goulding in fourth grade, I thought he was so exotic because of his English accent! Our class sure put him through the paces. May he rest in peace.
Mr. Goulding was a favorite teacher. I was in his first class at Prairie Grove. I had the picture taken at a retirement dinner at Prairie Grove we both attended. He and my father used to drive to NIU together. My parents Charles and Florence Schott thought highly of him. My sympathies to your entire family.
My thoughts and prayers are with the family. I enjoyed having Mr.Goulding as my 4th grade teacher at Prairie Grove.
